Adding an egress window to your basement is key to bringing basement bedrooms up to code. It’s also a big boost if you ever sell your home. As of 2019, American homes were worth an average $119 per square foot, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. If you add an egress window to your 120 square foot basement bedroom, that could translate as an additional $7,140 or $9,996 in resale value.
But there is another value proposition. An egress window in each basement bedroom drastically improves your chance of safe escape in the event of a major house fire. The windows also provide entry points into your home for emergency personnel.
